JOHN VIANNEY Archbishop Wilton Gregory has announced the appointment of Rev. Ignacio Morales as pastor of St. John Vianney parish and Rev. Mark Thomas as parochial vicar; effective on July 1st. NUEVO CLERO de SAN JUAN VIANNEY El Arzobispo Wilton Gregory ha anunciado el nombramiento del Reverendo Ignacio Morales como Párroco de la parroquia de San Juan Vianney y al Reverendo Mark Thomas como Vicario Parroquial; efectivo el 1 de julio May 24, 2015 Pentecost Sunday Acts 2:1-11 Psalm 104 1 Cor 12:3b-7, 12-13 or Gal 5:16-25 John 20:19-23 or 15:2627; 16:12-15 Luke tells us that the disciples “were all in one place” (v 1) on Pentecost. Their continued presence in Jerusalem is in obedience to Jesus’ command to wait in the holy city until they receive the Holy Spirit (see Acts 1:4). In Hebrew, the word for “wind,” ruah, is also the word for “spirit” and “breath.” It was God’s ruah that hovered over the waters of creation and was breathed into Adam. God’s Spirit comes to rest on the disciples, and they are “filled with the Holy Spirit”; they begin speaking “in different tongues” (v 4) so that their message is heard by the Pentecost pilgrims in Jerusalem, “devout Jews from every nation under heaven” (v 5). Paul tells us that it is only “by the Holy Spirit” (v 3) that we can proclaim the Lordship of Jesus; that is God’s Spirit at work in us. The gifts of the Spirit are many and produce different fruits, but they come from “the same God” (v 6). Cyril of Jerusalem compares the Spirit to the rain: the same rain falls on different plants, but the flowers they produce depend on their own identity, whether lily or rose or violet or hyacinth (Catechesis, 14:12). Each of us is called to do our part with what we have been given for the good of others. Jesus’ Easter evening appearance to the apostles in today’s Gospel is unexpected. They are hiding behind locked doors “for fear of the Jews,” but he “came and stood in their midst” (v 19). Showing them “his hands and his side” confirms his identity as the one who was crucified and had his side pierced. Their response is to rejoice. He now gives them “the Holy Spirit” (v 22) promised at the Last Supper. For our evangelist, Easter inaugurates the era of the Spirit-led church. For reflection: Is my experience of God’s Spirit more like a strong wind or a gentle whisper? How have I experienced God’s Spirit in the lives of others? Today as we celebrate Pentecost the Holy Spirit wants to make us advocates of God’s presence to bring new life to others, especially those who do not know the love of God in their lives. Your gift in the St. Vincent de Paul envelope will help the poor to believe in the mystery of God’s love for them. URGENT!!!!

Sign up online at www.sjvpar.net Minutes – SJV PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING HELD APRIL 27, 2015 (The minutes are posted at www.sjvpar.net) Attendees: Fr. Reto Davatz, Sue Baird, Trina Burke, Carmen Diaz, Lourdes Fontanés, Sharon Loiselle, Frank Moran, and Maria Laboy. We introduced Bill Clarke, Associate Director of Professional Development, Office of Formation and Discipleship of the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Bill provided an overview of the recently published Archdiocese Pastoral Plan. He stated that the Archbishop has charged each Pastor with the responsibility to announce the plan to their parishioners, and tailor it to address the individual needs of the parish. This five-year plan has 14 recommendations; it is recommended that the Pastor and pastoral council study those and determine which ones to focus on first. The Pastoral Council recommended that we show the video during mass in early May. As far as developing a parish pastoral plan, that will be deferred until we have a new pastor. Instead, following Bill Clarke’s recommendation, the Pastoral Council discussed the need to conduct a Parish Needs Assessment, since we are undergoing a major change with the departure of the Conventual Franciscans. The new pastor can use the needs assessment as a tool in determining the priorities and future direction of the overall parish strategy. The Pastoral Council will need to discuss this with Father George, who was unable to attend the meeting. It is the Pastoral Council’s recommendation that during the month of May we ask the ministry leaders to choose 3-5 members of their group to participate in the one-page survey. Upon receipt of the responses, the Pastoral Council will consolidate the results, and analyze the data to provide a state of the parish report to the new Pastor. Maria announced that, as a follow up to a discussion during the Pastoral Council meeting in March, Father George communicated his desire that we wait until a new Pastor arrives before we nominate and/or select new Council members. We discussed the upcoming ordination of Michael Garcia, which will take place in Miami, FL on May 9th. A mass followed by dinner is still being planned in his honor for late May, here at St. John Vianney. Information will be published in the church bulletin and on the SJV website. Chris Butler has organized a meeting for April 29, to begin organizing the Bereavement Ministry. This was announced in the bulletin. Parish picnic is still on target for May 31st. Minutes from the Pastoral Council meeting held March 19 were approved by Lourdes Fontanés and Sue Baird. THE NEXT PASTORAL COUNCIL MEETING WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
